Orla Kiely is a new brand that I've never tried before but always liked the look of due to the bold and colourful designs with iconic retro prints - don't they look great? The Bergamot collection consists of 100% natural essential oils and features hints of cedarwood, patchouli, grapefruit and you guessed it .. bergamot! Then of course there are a few spicy features like cardamom and aniseed to give it the zesty, refreshing and herbal scent that so many people love. I have to say, I'm normally one for fruity scents or sweet coconuts when it comes to bath and body products but I have really enjoyed these products.
The shower gel is light and refreshing and the perfect way to refresh and pamper in the shower or bath. It lathers well and smells divine. The body lotion is very moisturising but what I like most about it is that it doesn't leave your skin with that oily residue - it sinks right in. Plus, all products in this collections are free from sulphates, parabens, petrochemicals and artificial colours - making them perfect for those of us with sensitive skin.
Both the shower gel and body lotion retail for £12 each, available at www.orlakiely.com and various department stores such as John Lewis.
